Quote of the Day

"From Egypt to Georgia, President Bush -- egged on by neoconservative pundits and analysts -- wrote rhetorical checks he had no intention (or ability) to cash." -- Gregory Scoblete, writing in RealClearWorld.

The neocons have been disastrously wrong about al Qaeda, Iraq, and Iran, to name just a few topics. They haven't owned up to their misjudgements, and are trying to needle President Obama into direct intervention in Iran. That, as most Iranian experts agree, would be another catastrophe not only for U.S. Middle East policy, but for the democratic forces inside Iran.

Neocons fervently hope that no one will notice that they're members of the Likud Party - American Chapter, and would like nothing better than the U.S. being the spear point for a preemptive attack on the Likudists greatest enemy.
